Bug#749839: ITP: guncat -- cat variant that handles partial encrypted sections of text

  Description     : cat variant that handles mixed clear and encrypted text

Guncat (Gpg UNencrypting CAT) was designed to tackle
a problem encountered with (partially) PGP encrypted files
(as encountered, e.g., in mailboxes): the encrypted sections
of such files are relatively difficult to browse through.

Guncat acts like unix's cat command, but handles
(partially) encrypted sections of processed files.
Sections of guncat's input files which are surrounded by
markers are decrypted before being concatenated to the
standard output stream.

Guncat's output (i.e., the standard output stream) may
subsequently be processed by other programs, like grep
or less.
